Competent Adults U Learn


Published on

This interactive session will explore the key competency of relating to others as it needs to be built in the adults in your schools. The key competencies of the NZC are important to develop in students but they must first be developed in those who act as role models - leaders, teachers and other staff in the school. 'Relating to Others' must be developed on purpose... and it starts with you. This workshop will provide practical examples of how the adults in your school can be encouraged to develop strong interpersonal skills and to be aware of the effect they have on others
